OU-Tulsa Student Research Travel Awards

OU-Tulsa Student Researchers Need Your Help!



Travel Awards are Essential to Promoting Student Research

The OU-Tulsa Research Forum is an annual multidisciplinary event that showcases research from all colleges on the OU-Tulsa campus. The event has grown from a small event in 2002, with only 14 abstract submissions on health research, to approximately 80 submissions per year.  


Students are provided an opportunity to showcase their research in the areas of biomedical, education, engineering / applied research, or social / behavioral and community service. All researchers submit a poster on their topic and findings. In addition, they are required to make a presentation to peers, faculty, and community leaders during the forum. Winners are selected in each category.


OU-Tulsa student and medical residents seldom present their research outside of Oklahoma due to the cost involved. The reality is that many Tulsa students are struggling to balance their education with job and families; therefore, they simply do not have the financial resources to underwrite the cost of travel and fees associated with national conferences. Travel awards are essential to helping these OU-Tulsa students showcase their research nationally.



How You Can Help

Your contribution will enable OU-Tulsa student researchers to present their findings at conferences across the United States. Funds generated through this campaign will provide travel awards to two top researchers at the 2018 OU-Tulsa Research Forum, scheduled for April 18. Specifically, your gift will help underwrite travel expenses and conference registration fees associated with showcasing the students’ research outside of Oklahoma. All contributions are tax-deductible and will directly benefit our student researchers — every gift counts!



Help Spread the Message

You can help promote this campaign by sharing our message on your social media, emailing your friends and family, and talking to your colleagues.  We believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of OU-Tulsa student researchers by providing them with the means to present their research nationally.
